A tear without loss and without injury to the engraving on the frontispiece of the book, some boards dissociated, some spots without gravity parties.
The "Lavater" is in the tradition of all great works of physiognomy published previously, it is not only the scientific outcome (getting rid of all his discipline esoteric jumble), but it shines through his exemplary illustration (Lavater friend of Fussli particularly neat drawings).
